Abstract

The study was laid out with the main objective to find out the effect of urea and KH2PO4 applied through foliar spray on floral parameters and floret production of gladiolus cv. Friendship at JCB, Etawah, C.S.J.M. University, Kanpur during two years. Foliar spray of 3% urea and 0.75% KH2PO4 applied 60 days after planting give highest length of flower stalk. The spraying of urea and KH2PO4 slightly increase the days to 1st flowering opening over the control. The small size of florets was recorded under control by 5.65 cm diameter against the larger obtained by spray of urea 3% to 6.90 cm diameter. As regard, the effect of KH2PO4 bigger florets of 6.73 cm was produce by 0.75% concentration in comparison to lower doses of KH2PO4 and control. The 3% urea solution increases the number of florets per stalk by 22% and KH2PO4 by 15% over the control.
